Port Blair's Best Accomodation.
Designed by the legendary architect Mr.Charles Correa ( who designed Chandigarh city of India), this place is surely the best accomodation in Port Blair. The location, overlooking the North Bay , is just out of the place. The place is on a hillock, called Mrine Hill, almost near the Naval dockyard, has the best view of the sea and North Bay! I was given one of their best rooms ( 305), the view from the room was fantastic! I could almost see the Sunrise every morning. The room had tea/coffee maker( which was over supplied), I used to make my own tea see the sunrise and communicate with many VT friends with my laptop everyday. I enjoyed every bit of my stay in this hotel.
The food was great, the menu changed everyday, the chef was great! Once, I appreciated his cooking, he almost asked me everyday, what should I cook? He even cooked " Chettnad Chicken" at my request. All the staffs, managers, chefs, reception took personal care and greetings came from every person in the hotel. I even, found the swimming pool people very cooperative, careful and helpful. The room had ample supply of toiletories, towels, bath robes, slippers, fruits, cold drinks. They even cleaned the rooms twice a day!
Before going to Port Blair, I read some hotel review in VT, who made very sarcastic comments about this hotel. I found it totally untrue. I also found, many Europeans, Japanese people staying in this place.
A great place and great experience. This hotel has 45 rooms, some overlooking the sea. They have a bar called Nicobar and Mandalay Restaurant for multi cuisine meals and sea food. The place has a beautiful salt water swimming pool, a fitness centre, private movie theatre, library, indoor games, conference and everything thing you look in a five star resort.
